Go Green !!!!

Caleb and Eliza had their first soccer game yesterday !  They did so GREAT!!  Caleb was a great goalie and he was super fast out on the field. Eliza had a blast kicking the ball around and was a great goalie as well. Sarah didn't want to play this year. She was the sweetest cheerleader at the park.
Adam and I enjoyed watching the kids play.
The "Green team" won 3-0 ! GO Green !!!!  It was a fun game to watch.

Red Neck Swimming Pool!

Saturday night baths have never been so fun! 
Burrrrrr! It was way to cold for the rest of us, but the girls had a blast!

Gurr's got Talet !

About a month ago during Family Home Evening we talked about talents, and the importance of developing and sharing our talents with others.  I encouraged each of the kids make something using their talents, and enter it at the County Fair.

Eliza has been interested in photography lately, so I let her borrow my camera. She took a great picture of  Millie and we entered it and she won a Third place ribbon!!!! Yay Eliza!

Sarah decided she wanted to use some of her beads to make a necklace that she could submit at the fair. She worked very hard on it and it took her a while. The result was a beautiful princess necklace that also won a third place ribbon! Yay Sarah!
Caleb took a while to decide what he wanted to do. He thought his only talent was bike riding, and we couldn't quite figure out how to submit bike riding as an entry. Hmm..what could he do. When I asked him about some of his other interests he said that he did like to make paper airplanes and stuff. I suggested he build a model rocket. He loved the idea and he got right to work on a kit. He got it all put together, painted it entered it......and won FIRST PLACE!!! A Blue ribbon for Caleb! All right!

I am so proud of all of them! They are already trying to decide what to do for next years fair!

While at the fair we had a blast riding a train, eating yummy food, seeing great exhibits, watching a reptile 
show and a magic act! 

The kids also wanted to climb "Spider Mountain".  They all made it all the way to the TOP!! Way to go guys! (We saw an older boy chicken out less than half way up) I just had to throw that in cause I like braggin' about my kids and their awesomeness!

Give a Day Get a Day!

Earlier this year I got a call from my Sister -in -law Heather. She told me that Disneyland had a promotion going on where if you give a day of service, you get a free ticket to Disneyland. She said her family was doing it and if we did, we could go to Disneyland together! It sounded like fun so I told her to count us in!
For our service, we signed up with an organization called Treasures for Teachers and put together kits for teachers. We filled boxes with all kinds of supplies like stickers, pens, post-its, markers, paperclips, etc...Oh, and I threw in some chocolate! We added some hand made thank you cards, wrapped them up pretty and then delivered them to the "drop off place".  It wasn't long before we got our vouchers for our "Disney Day"!

We were able to redeem those vouchers this past week. Heather made matching shirts for all the kids. They looked so cute and were so excited to be together at the "Happiest Place on Earth"!

Instead of me rambling on about every fun adventure we had, I'm just going to post a bunch of pictures.  Have fun looking at them. We sure had fun at Disney land!

Waiting for Disneyland to open!! We were first in line.

Dancing with Mary Poppins! "Step in Time!"

Eliza opted not to participate in Jedi training because she "didn't want to get killed!"

Having fun on Tom Sawyer Island

Meeting Micky!
Best Day Ever!

I was experimenting with my blog, now I want it back the way It was!!!!
 I did want it wider, but I dont know how to get rid of the gray border. I also don't like the way things aren't centered. Grrrr....I hate when I can't figure things out.
